We have a beautiful
swimming pool area in the back of the garden, and not too close
to the house. It is 14 x 6 metres so there is always plenty of
room both in the pool and on the 'plage' - as the French call
the area surrounding a swimming pool. When we have too much heat
and sun there is also plenty of shade. The pool area is well protected
by some fir trees, from the westerly winds , which don't blow
very often but nearly always come from the west.
for the pool is taken care of by a salt water system and with
this method the water is kept in tip top condition, even during
the hottest of weather. Additionally the acidity level is kept
low so there is no smell of chlorine and it is kinder to the eyes.
The acidity level is maintained at 7.4 which I am told is the
same as our eyes, although I've never measured mine !
We ask all our guests
to bring their own swimming pool towels - but there's no need
to rush out in the morning to reserve a place !
